From , 5:02 am on 14 June 2017

There are hopes that a Samoan version of a digital app will build greater awareness among children and their families about rheumatic fever.

The "beat fever" project is a collaboration between Kiwa Digital and and the National Hauora Coalition who led the rheumatic fever prevention programme in Auckland.

Software developer, Steven Renata, told Sara Vui-Talitu that the app, which empowers children to understand rheumatic fever, has had thousands of downloads.
